On the Annunciation

"... Hail, Mary." This portrait by Henry Ossawa Tanner (1898, Philadelphia Museum of Art) is my favorite image of the Annunciation because it shows the young woman turning calmly toward the light.

Is God beckoning to you right now with a light of a different kind, calling you to step out and trust?

Mother Mary, pray for us as we follow the light of Christ, that we will trust Him no matter where He leads us.
